Salary at Commonwealth Bank

What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?

Pay could always be more but CBA is relatively high for the industry given the hours worked.
Graduate, Sydney
pay is pretty standard. We have bonuses, would rather no bonus and just higher pay.
Midlevel, Sydney
competitive with market
Midlevel, Sydney
Depends on manager for your bonus. Pay is slightly below industry but the culture and flexibility closes the gap.
Graduate, Sydney
On the graduate program the salary was quite low but since becoming an analyst it has increased by 10000 a year. Bonuses are given based on your annual review and the process for how much you receive is not clear. There is not good agreement across the company and some team get bonuses far higher than others regardless of work.

Base salary is good, bonuses not good
Graduate, Sydney
They could definitely be better

Known for being quite weak. And the grad program is two years, so have to endure low pay for a long time.

For the stage I am in my career, I think my pay is competitive.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay is excellent immediately following the grad program. However, promotions are not at all tenure-based (unlike other industries) so there's a lot of luck involved in progressing to higher pay
Midlevel, Sydney
Bonuses are good and achievable. Pay is flexible and a great starting salary.

linked to performance. Highly dependant on the business you work in - varies by management.
Graduate, Sydney
Have only experienced one bonus so far during the Graduate program. So don't have a lot of insight.
Graduate, Sydney
Base salary is good for my experience level compared to others in industry. The bonus is based on the company's performance and individual performance.
Midlevel, Sydney
I think I get paid more than most graduates in the legal/finance profession. Definitely a lot more than a junior lawyer. Bonuses are also very good.

Pay could be more compared to the major startups. But it's decent.

We have staff discounts
Graduate, Sydney
Not many unusual perks. There is a coffee machine and milo and milk in the kitchen. There is an employee superannuation fund and an employee health fund. Supposedly, they are cheaper than other alternatives, but I am not sure. I think there are industry super funds that have lower fees than the CBA Group Super Fund. We get employee banking discounts. Fee free everyday account and credit card, and discounts on loans and insurance. These discounts are not worth that much in dollar terms. - Fee free everyday account: There are lots of fee free accounts by online banks, or you get fee free at big 4 by depositing in $2000/month anyway. - Discounts on loans & insurance: Even after you apply the discounts, it's still cheaper to get something else online.
